Re: Do I have to constantly make sure the snake isn't getting away?
Letting the tank open should never be an option. The snake will not come and go as it pleases. Definitely do more research about owning snakes before getting one. They have very specific requirements such as: housing, feeding, heating, humidity just to name a few. This forum is a good place to start learning and asking questions from experienced keepers. Welcome and let us know what type of snake you were thinking about and we can help you.
